Thinking Fellers Union Local 282- The Invitation

The party's over.

Do you still get calls like this? It's pathetic, but I still make similar calls once every blue moon. Contrasting Hugh's invitation to "get really drunk and high" with a mournful dirge is a stroke of genius typical of Thinking Fellers Union Local 282, a California-based experimental band. They were sort of a crankier Camper Van Beethoven. "The Invitation," from 1994, is the perfect introduction or conclusion to a savage mix CD.

I never understood TFUL282, but I keep trying. Thinking of them as a "crankier" CVB helps.
